Pub Night 2018 rocked our socks off!

Pub Night for Pets was a night to remember!

On the evening of Thursday, Nov 9th, Memories Restaurant And Bar was jam-packed with over 125 animal lovers who came out to support a great cause – to help raise funds for the cats and dogs at GTHS. The event raised over $13,800 for pets and people in need in our community.

From the amazing selection of silent auction prizes so generously donated by our local business community to the tantalizing taco bar, the entire room was filled with smiles, cheers – and complimentary beers from Collingwood Brewery – Thank you!

Once the band, Horseshoes & Handgrenades, started to play, the night morphed into a life of its own. The dance floor filled immediately due to exceptional vocals, tune and talents for this group. Even better, over 18 door prizes were handed out to thank participants for supporting the work of the GTHS.

We’d like to thank our sponsors – Mike Jackson GM,Mullin’s Pet Market, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Collingwood Brewery and the Ontario SPCA– who all supported us from the very beginning, sharing similar values and compassion for the homeless animals we care for.


Gratitude also goes out to Amanda Hill and Hailey Kim, of the wonderful establishment, Memories Restaurant and Bar – who ensured all details were taken care of and that there would be plenty of food for everyone!

Kudos also to our Chair, Barbara Foster, as well as Deb Keep, Monika Gibson and Evlyn Stants, who helped organize our silent auction which involves a keen and coordinated eye for the small details that make a big difference. Thank you, ladies!

And to you our honoured guests, supporters, and donors… Thank YOU! The success of these fundraising events hinge on you, your support, and your mindfulness that it takes a community to help care for over 1,200 cats and dogs who come through our shelter each year.
